#MSWL teen who wants to be an architect and does their senior showcase (and obviously a ton of research) on international architecture. Idc what the major plot arc is, I just want this to be one of the things.
As we approach Sept, let me just publicly declare: I’m all onboard with the spooks. Murder mysteries, ghost stories, what have you. BUT. My main focus is still an engaging, funny voice and an examination of some kind of culture (geographic, hobby, sport, familial, etc.) 👻 #MSWL
Just finished HELLO GIRLS, and hot damn, can I get a hard #MSWL for badass friends who give a biiiiig middle finger to the patriarchy and choose each other over everything else? A side of murdering abusive men is always welcome on this menu 🤷🏻♀️
Suzanne F. Boswell @sf_boswellLast night, Simone Biles successfully performed a triple double, and the entire world is (correctly) freaking out.

#MSWL would love a YA about the gymnastics world that contains this level of reader-friendly information and explanation.

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI keep thinking about how badly I want to read more smart, unnerving YA horror.
I don't want gore. I want a story that makes me ask questions that I don't want an answer to. #MSWL

It’s Kind of a Funny Story
We Set the Dark on Fire

And let’s be real, basically every one is #MSWL goals.
#BookExpo session on the future of publishing has me thinking about the importance of representing the people where you live. So on that note: #YA #MSWL featuring Hmong characters and info on the Secret War and ensuing refugee movement. Plus if it’s in the Twin Cities!
Sneak peak of my Research of Writing in YA/MG Fiction webinar. (When I say I’m looking for manuscripts that’ll teach me stuff, I’m on this level #MSWL)
